Whether you’ve got a green thumb or not, we can all agree that adding a dash of nature indoors is always a good choice. A great way to open up those four walls and bring some life back into the space, indoor plants are a timeless interior favourite and can be as simple or extravagant as you wish. Here are some simple ideas for your indoor amazon…
Choose the right plant for your space
This might seem obvious, but it’s always good to start of with some research before investing in a new plant. Try and secure a plant that is right for the space, climate and level of responsibility you can offer. For plants that are less maintenance, try clustering some succulents or cacti – just make sure they are exposed to some sun for the vast majority of the time.
Dare to be different
If your standard pot plant isn’t doing it for you, take it a step further by opting for an indoor vertical herb garden. Vertical herb gardens can consist of anything you wish, and can be conveniently placed inside the kitchen to add a flare of colour in a communal area. Particularly great for the avid chef, vertical gardens can be mounted on exposed timber slabs for a rustic vibe or secured on muted hooks so the plants are the star of the show.
Fake it ‘till you make it

If faux is the way you go, just make sure your plant selection is good enough to fool the eyes!
Vines, vines, vines!
Believe it or not, if your interior décor has an undone and imperfect vibe, there are a variety of plants that compliment this aesthetic to a tee. Dribbling naturally over the side of its abode, vines such as Hoya, English Ivy, and Ferns along with many others, have a relaxing artistic appeal when styled loosely indoors. Plants such as these can be fixed to hang from a ceiling or simply sat on a shelf for an effortless zest of nature indoors.
Liven up the living room
Areas such as the living room are the soul of the house, so it’s important to keep spaces like these clean and fresh. A simple way of creating a comfortable area is incorporating a variety of plants to ensure fresh air is being produced in such a populated space. Plants literally create oxygen and look 10/10 – winning! Clustering a range of different plants together are also a great space filler, and the contrast of plants makes for a stylish final product.
